Miyabi Urushi Nezuko Kiso Woodwork Japanese Soba Tray
This is a traditional wooden tray with a removable bamboo strainer used for serving cold soba (buckwheat noodles).
Made in a classic design, this soba tray is the perfect way to enjoy a restaurant experience in the comfort of your own home. The removable bamboo strainer makes it simple to serve cold soba during hot summer days and to clean after use.
You can also serve other cold noodles such as udon or "somen (thin wheat noodles)" as a variation. Furthermore, you can use this tray to serve daily meals in a single-plate presentation. This can certainly create a feeling of extra delight in even the simplest of meals.
Made from high-quality "Nezuko" cypress from the Kiso district of Nagano Prefecture, this soba tray has a high resistance to decay and is characterized with low shrinkage. The natural grains of Nezuko are accentuated by baking and polishing the surface. This process not only gives a soothing brown color to the tray but also prevents corrosion and provides insect repellency.
The dark hue of charred Nezuko cypress can be matched perfectly with other tableware items to create a rustic and authentic table setting for a soba lunch. Feel the delicate touch of cypress as you admire the intricate craftsmanship of this soba tray.

ABOUT Japanese Woodcraft
In Japan, 70% of the land is covered with forests, and there are said to be as many as 200 species of trees, including coniferous trees such as cedar and cypress, and broad-leaved trees such as zelkova, chestnut, and horse chestnut, that are used for construction and woodworking.
Woodworking techniques developed along with tools, giving rise to a variety of woodworking techniques such as sashimono, carving, gouging, grinding, bending, and hooping.
The skillful use of tools such as axes, machetes, planes, saws, chisels, and files in Japanese woodworking supports not only the lives of people but also the cultural heritage of temples and shrines.The elaborate techniques that have been cultivated over a long period of history are highly regarded around the world.
